tires and rims... time to decide.... again

aight guys im lookin for a new set of tires to slap on the dodge.... right now im on 35x12.5x17 BFG MudTerrains... i love the tires and they have a *** load of tread left on them.. but i want something differnt.... here's the 2 im looking at:


1. 35x12.5x17 Nitto Mud Grapplers
Name:  nitto.jpg
Views: 9
Size:  15.9 KB
Price: 285.95 a tire

2. 35x12.5x17 BFG Mud Terrain KM/2
Name:  KM2.jpg
Views: 5
Size:  14.7 KB
Price: 265.95 a tire

just dunno which ones yet.. i love the way they both look... obvisouly zach beard has the nitto's on his truck, a guy as work has a set of 37's nittos on his f-150.

They will be going on this dodge, just dunno if im gunna keep the rims, might be picking up some cheap black stealies also

personally i think the nitto's and a half way decent set of rims would set this truck off.... but let me know what yall think

just wondering, you check out Dick Cepek? i have the Crusher Radials and i love em, but i donk think their available for a 17" rim, just 15".

$228.95 each
or the Mud Country Radials which are available for a 17" rim.

$279.95 each

The grapplers are an awesome tire in both looks and abilities but I would probably go with the BFG's because I have also heard the grapplers wear fast.

everybody and there dog has grapplers around here but they are a sweet tire. They work awesome but are loud and do wear faster than the bfg's.

I haven't heard anything bad about the new km2's. I was talking to a guy that had them on his f250 and said he had like 25K on them and they still looked new.

id go with BFG, they are cheaper and will be cheaper because they wear slower, much slower than the nittos

I would go with the Nitto Grapplers, but please don't put black steel wheels on your truck, it change it from a good clean looking truck to cheesy look real quick.
